I'll get to February's photography shortly; I'm going to start with the work I've done on this site over the last month or so.   Firstly, I've suspended sales of mousemats and mugs, pending design reviews of the former.   At the end of December, I produced four mats as prototypes ,but one had a slight design fault on it.  I corrected the item in question and intended to review the remaining designs in the new year, but having now started work on the HTML 5 conversion of this site, I've concluded that this conversion should take priority, and the mousemat review has been shelved.   Since I cannot be certain that other designs might not have the same issue as the original problem, I've decided that it is best to remove the links to the product sales galleries until I can get round to doing this, which may not be for some months. 
Which brings me to the HTML 5 conversion.   I've decided to start this process at the collection level and have managed to convert 5 collections during February, with a sixth likely to arrive on site in early March.   However, with over 100 collections on this site at the time of writing, this process is going to take quite some time, and I have decided for the most part to prioritise collections that are either being added to, or expected to be added to.   This could mean that the Event collections will be low down on the list for conversion, and it's possible that some collections may be left in the format that they currently stand.
The new format is designed to resize when accessed through a mobile device, and I've tried to come up with a design that works reasonably well on both a computer and a mobile device (I'm using a Kindle Fire to test the latter).   I've reduced the amount of technical information relating to the photographs in the new format, and some text elements won't show up on a mobile device, so I would still advise using a computer to access this site for the full effect.   The navigational buttons have been re-positioned with a view to positioning those buttons that access deeper into the site on the left of the page, which I feel works better on a mobile device.   The photographs themselves have had the base resolution increased, but the downside is that some older items - mainly 35mm film photographs - have been removed, partly due to resizing issues, and partly to save conversion time.
Ok, onto the actual photography.    A visit from 70013 "Oliver Cromwell" during the month resulted in "Steam Locomotives - BR" jumping the conversion queue, and a request for some photographs of Tewkesbury's Bloody Meadow resulted in "Gloucestershire" replacing "Dorset" for conversion.   The last weekend saw a major session at a new National Trust Property (half of one wishlist item completed) and two sessions with Jerry; these  photographs are expected to arrive on this site in March.  
I suspect that I will concentrate on National Trust properties during the month, and leave my first visit to the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway of 2018 until after the opening of the Broadway section.  
Evesham Regattas 2016 and 2017 - Sales
It is my intention to withdraw the sales facilities from both these collections at the end of April 2018.   I cannot really justify renewing the subscription on the 2017 sales gallery due to the lack of sales since its inception,  and I don't really feel that splitting into three galleries is justified either.   There was not enough interest in the 2016 work to really justify retaining the three sales galleries on this event any longer either.
